Streamlining the development of effective road safety programmes
Submission Date: 2019
The Northland Programming Tool was developed for the Northland Transport Alliance and was named as a finalist for the 2019 New Zealand 3M Traffic Safety Innovation Award. The tool assists practitioners with identifying the appropriate intervention to install on a selected corridor or intersection. It allows these projects to be added to a programme and then assists with the prioritisation of projects within a programme. Prioritisation is done based on the available budget and a user defined metric, such as the highest death and serious injuries savings per kilometer of road network. This paper also explores the opportunities for further developing the tool.
